K’den, this is what I was seeing on Wednesday. See it? Looks like a really mean face. And sticking out his tongue, too.

Aloha ʻOe, Oregon Big-Leaf Maple Driveway Tree – Chapter One

I have so many photos of this tree coming down that I’m not gonna try put them all in one post. Although really, how many photos and videos can I put up here without totally boring you to tears?  (“Oh yeah, another photo. It’s a tree. It’s getting cut down. So?”)  Well, I’ll start anyway. Tell me “pau awreddy!” if you’re bored.

This was our glorious tree last October.

Da Kine Numbah Four

So, I thought it’d be fun to do another da kine post, since the chances of me catching up are pretty nil.

This first photo shows a Comcast guy ‘way up on his ladder, reattaching a cable that had come down, thanks to the big maple tree in the middle of our driveway.  No way I’d climb up that high.

$$$ Ouch!

So today I was knitting on a sock while I got my car serviced. I also needed a new headlight. I thought I had LED ones and that it wouldn’t be a big deal, or a huge cost, to get it replaced. Wrong! Wrong to da max!  My car has HID lights. And just one of them was….are you ready? $300!!! Because it has the ballast already in it or something. I love how bright they are, but sheesh!! I hope the other one doesn’t go out soon. And on our dark country roads, having my headlight back is a good thing.

I used to change my own headlights. Simple. Buy the bulb. Open the hood. Take out the old bulb. Install the new one. Not any more.

But I knit on a sock while I was there and I didn’t have to wait too long; at least my socks don’t cost that much.
